What was I thinking when I thought this exploratory procedure would be a cinch?! What a nightmare couple of days I've had. My left knee's been replaced by a something I don't recognize in size & colour.....& as for the pain, how come no-one warned me! As expected the stairs at home have proved to be my nemesis & MOTH's had to drag me up & down them on his back. Can't add much except to Squeak the lovely Hedgie who left this comment 'Hi Millie, I've had the same surgery twice. There's very little pain. As a matter of fact, I didn't take any of the painkillers the doctor prescribed.' I'll have what you're on mate.
To complete my misery, the procedure was an abject failure. The smart young Gen Y whizz kid of an Orthopaedic Surgeon fessed up that things were a lot worse than he expected once he shoved his camera into me poor old knee. Not a bit of remedial good could he do. So that's it, my Season's over, I'm stuffed. Excuse me but I hear the drug trolley being pushed my way, time for another hit of whatever I can get. It's the weekend dear Hedgies, so go enjoy!
